RE: I'm a long time user with a long time complaint

This wouldn't be as much of an issue if AhnkSVN had a better conflict
resolution interface. Maybe they've improved it from what I have, but
that is the main reason for me to have to switch the client.

I realize it is not TortoiseSVN's fault, but I would expect a read only
operation like Blame or Log to not change the state of anything.
However, that is one of the times that SVN updates its .svn folders.
All you need is the URL of the server which hasn't changed really since
I first started using SVN (whichever version that was when Apache
started adopting it for some of their projects). The URL location is
always the first identifiable URL in the .svn/entries file roughly five
lines from the top.

That's what happened the last time I got caught with this frustrating
behavior. My expected behavior for any read only action from the server
is that my local copy is completely untouched. The current behavior of
SVN violates that expectation. Perhaps this could be a bit of low
hanging fruit that would avoid misguided rants from people like me in
the future.

Of my clients that use SVN, most standardized on TSVN since that works
for all users in the company. The rest standardized on AhnkSVN for
Visual Studio. Either way, each company is using only 1 SVN client on
user PCs. (And most of the IT departments still refuse to run the SVN
server, so we are forced to use file:/// URLs over network shares.)
